Rutgers study: Third of N.J. immigrant children, many adult newcomers lack health insurance
Date:6/29/2011

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. One-third of immigrant children and more than 70 percent of foreign-born, nonelderly adults living in New Jersey five years or less lack health coverage, a Rutgers statewide survey finds.

The report, "Health, Coverage and Access to Care of New Jersey Immigrants," by the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy (CSHP), also concludes immigrants face significant access-to-care barriers and their lack of health insurance is a much larger problem than for New Jerseyans born in the United States.

The research describes the health profile, insurance status and health care utilization indicators of New Jersey's diverse immigrant population. The 2009 New Jersey Family Health Survey, a representative survey of 2,500 households designed and conducted by CSHP, describes the demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of the state's approximately 1.7 million immigrants who are predominantly of Asian and Hispanic origin and largely of working age.

Among other findings:

  • Non-Hispanic black and Hispanic immigrant adults are disproportionately uninsured.
  • Asian and non-Hispanic white immigrant adults lack health insurance at nearly the same rates, but more than three-quarters of Hispanic noncitizens lack health coverage.
  • More than one in five foreign-born children and one in three noncitizen adults do not have a usual source of health care.
  • Immigrant adults and seniors with a health problem are less likely to have seen a doctor in the past year than those who are U.S.-born.
  • In spite of coverage and access barriers, New Jersey immigrants do not use emergency departments for nonurgent health care more than U.S.-born state residents.
  • Immigrants in the state are more likely to view accessing care at public or free clinics acceptable.

"Immigrants in New Jersey span the socioeconomic spectrum. Our data show that, in fact, a greater proportion of foreign-born citizen adults have a colle
